Whether you do your boating on a big-time sportfisherman or a pocket cruiser, boaters typically have two things in common, a love of the water and use for a solid, reliable tender. We scoured the boat shows across the country in search of the best new tenders.
Our first look at the Prestige 680. With a range of boats between 40 and 75 feet, Prestige has, in recent years, made a strong push into the midsize luxury cruising market. And the company’s popularity should be no surprise considering the attention to detail aboard its boats.
Who better to take you through the capabilities (substantial) and amenities (plenty to go around) of Tiara’s new Q44 than Leon Slikkers of Tiara Yachts. Join Executive Editor Capt. Bill Pike as he joins Slikkers and his team on the Great Lakes. See what happened here.
Viking decided to take the Viking 80 in a different direction, one that fits in very well with what we look for in a fishing-ready performer. See what we found out when we put her through her paces here.
There are those who will tell you displacement speed is the most fuel-efficient way to travel. But back-of-the-envelope calculations may show you that the MJM 50z is the solution for the way you cruise.
Our first look at the Southport 33 FE. Man, this hull can really run. The 33 FE from Southport is a do-it-all boat that is a ton of fun to whip around, especially when there are family and friends aboard.
Among Hatteras’s primary concerns when it created the 70 Motor Yacht was interior volume and livability. To that end, the company really went all out. With four staterooms, the 70 can easily accommodate eight guests, nine if you incorporate the optional Pullman berth.
